Upping the ante on Vegas excess, Papillon Airways invites travelers to indulge in the ultimate exclusive experience — a flight over the Grand Canyon. From most major Strip and downtown hotels, guests are transported via complimentary limousine service to McCarran International Airport. From here, no more than six high rollers at a time will take flight in one of Grand Canyon Helicopters' three state-of-the-art Star B2 Model Series aircraft. Set to choreographed music and educational narration, the classic Golden Eagle Private Tour explores the wonders of the West Rim of the Grand Canyon, with sights along the way including Hoover Dam, Grand Wash Cliffs, Grapevine Mesa and the Black Mountains. The approximately three-hour trip concludes with a flight down the Las Vegas Strip. For those who want a bit more for their roll of the dice, the approximately four-hour Grand Celebration Private Sunset Tour (departing at 5 p.m.) includes everything in the classic tour and also features a helicopter descent into the depths of the West Rim. After touching down by the banks of the Colorado River, guests will have time to explore the historic Native American landscape and enjoy a Champagne picnic served under an authentic Hualapai Indian shelter. The flights are available in ten languages via a digital audio system.
